we the people owe a great deal to Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. A majority of us Americans were living with a
sense of guilt, a sense of being rotten the way we treated our fellow men and
struggle has liberated us from such pain, and has brought freedom to the oppressed
Black Men and women, we still have ways to go, but go we will.
|MLK- changed the morality of America for better|
Secondly, we the people appreciate the white majority to have stood up for what
was right – and join MLK on the steps of Lincoln Memorial to let the
administration know what was morally right needs to become the law of the land.
we appreciate the African American community for enduring the humility and
non-violently appealing to the morality of the nation and bring about the
change that was needed.
we the immigrant Americans, particularly the non-whites would not have made it
to America, had it not been for the Civil rights acts that MLK caused to
happen. All of us non-white Americans owe our success to MLK and we need to
pray for his soul today.
Fifthly, as Indian Americans, we
appreciate MLK, who saw the value in Mahatma Gandhi’s’ non-violent methods to
turn the oppressors around to see the futility in their approach. In MLK’s own voice – https://www.facebook.com/cspanhistory/videos/880821915364690/
Sixthly, as Muslim Americans, we are deeply committed to building a cohesive
America, where no American has to feel alienated, apprehensive or fearful of
the fellow Americans. We are committed to the safety and security of America.
Seventhly, I invite my fellow Americans to take time to reflect on the bottom
line work of all the great spiritual masters and civic leaders in creating such
societies, and share your favorite quote of MLK.
Thanks for taking the time to read my heartfelt notes.
Our mission at America Together Foundation is to build a cohesive America,
where we are all a part of the great web called America, and whatever we do to us or ourselves, will
affect us all.
God bless Martin Luther King Jr., and God bless America
